Biden White House closely watching Federal Reserve following bank failures (CNN) — All eyes are trained on the Federal Reserve as it prepares to announce another potential interest rate hike Wednesday afternoon — exactly 10 days after the Biden administration stepped in with dramatic emergency actions to contain the fallout from two bank failures.Biden White House officials will be closely watching the highly anticipated rate decision — and monitoring every word of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s public comments — for any telling clues on how the central bank is processing what has emerged one of the most urgent economic crises of Joe Biden’s presidency.The moment creates a complex, if carefully observed, dynamic for the administration’s top economic officials who have spent much of the last two weeks engaged in regular discussions and consultations with Powell and Fed officials as they’ve navigated rapid and acute risks to the banking system.The Fed’s central role is not only...

PMQs scorecard: Police reform in the spotlight as Boris and Brexit vote loom

Published Tue, 27 Feb 2024 00:21:22 GMT

PMQs scorecard: Police reform in the spotlight as Boris and Brexit vote loom Prime minister’s questions: a shouty, jeery, very occasionally useful advert for British politics. Here’s what you need to know from this week’s session in POLITICO U.K.’s weekly run-through.What they sparred about: Not Brexit or Boris Johnson, surprisingly. Keir Starmer — the U.K.’s former top prosecutor, in case you somehow didn’t know — used all six of his questions to press Rishi Sunak on the arguably more serious issue of reforming the Met police and policing across the U.K., in the wake of this week’s damning Casey review revealing a culture of misogyny, racism and homophobia. The Labour leader accused the government of negligence and Sunak of being out of touch, pointing to low levels of charges for rape charges and burglary. The PM reached for an old classic — he called Labour “soft on crime, soft on criminals.”Which left it to: The SNP’s Stephen Flynn to mention today’s looming Brexit vote. “What worries the PM most about Brexit; the 4 percent ...

10 days that shook the financial world

Published Tue, 27 Feb 2024 00:21:22 GMT

10 days that shook the financial world Izabella Kaminska is senior finance editor at POLITICO Europe.Over the span of 10 days, the global financial system was once again shaken.The time frame between the collapse of Californian lender Silicon Valley Bank, America’s 16th largest bank, and that of the 167-year-old lender Credit Suisse was approximately just that — 10 days. And as we witness the fallout, so far it appears contained. Stock markets are up, bank stocks seem stabilized and government bonds are in high demand. Officials reassure ad nauseam that the financial system remains strong and stable.But the truth is, even if so, what happened in this period of time has changed the financial system forever — and worryingly, most people haven’t even noticed.Governments and central banks would have you believe that in both cases, private sector solutions were found to resolve the failures. No taxpayer funds were used.But that is likely not true.In the United States, growing calls from the country’s top bil...

Victor Oladipo’s Heat time had come, then it was gone (unsure of what comes next)

Victor Oladipo’s Heat time had come, then it was gone (unsure of what comes next) Victor Oladipo could have retreated to the locker room and it would have been understood. Assuredly, he had to know the questions that were coming after being benched in two of the previous three games.Instead, he waited patiently by a training table, still glistening from post-practice sweat, while coach Erik Spoelstra offered comments in advance of Wednesday night’s game against the New York Knicks at Miami-Dade Arena.For Oladipo. patience not only has been a virtue these past several injury-racked seasons but practically a necessity.It is again.“I just didn’t know,” Oladipo said of lack of advance notice when he was held out of last week’s victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, the first time he was listed as “Did Not Play – Coach’s Decision” this season. “So I was just sitting there and sat there and supported my team. I think after a while I could tell I wasn’t going in. And can’t really control that. Just got...

ASK IRA: Is disappointment a factor of Heat expectations?

ASK IRA: Is disappointment a factor of Heat expectations? Q: I think Pat Riley bounces back in a big way next year. Born winner. Made Heat relevant the moment he walked through the doors. Not Dwyane Wade, not LeBron James, Pat. It all started with him. – Douglas.A: This arrived with Pat Riley turning 78 this week. But I’m not sure how much Pat has to “bounce back” from this season. The problem since Riley’s arrival in 1995 – and it’s not an actual problem – are the expectations. The Heat, entering Tuesday, stood tied with the NBA’s 10th-best record. So, in other words, even in what is being considered a down season, the Heat are ahead of two-thirds of the field. Still, anticipation of a “bounce back” seemingly would be justified, considering what the Heat achieved in the 2020 and 2022 playoffs coming off uneven seasons. But don’t limit those expectations just to Pat. Andy Elisburg, Adam Simon and the rest of the front office also have a way of creating turnarounds. And...
